    I haven't posted anything like this before, I should show some of the interesting jobs we do. This is a 2007 Passat 2L TDI we have dropped the complete rear end out of to completely rebuild and powder coat plus de-rust and treat the rear floor. More pics over the next few days.



    All the bolts through ally and bushings were seized solid, you can't wave the oxy at ally so you have to use an induction heater



    Camber arm inner bush, some were much worse



    Inner arch rust, same both sides



    Control blade mount area rust



    Snapped damper lower lower bolt, we had to cut the damper eye open, then cut through the bush to the sleeve, heat the sleeve and get it off the broken bolt and then run the induction heater for about five minutes until the stub glowed deep red to sink heat down into the ally carrier and the bolt then wound out with no thread or ally heat damage



    With an induction wire wrapped around the subframe mounts, these boiled up and pushed out quickly



    Dropping the set up down at the blasters in the morning
    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    Just had my rear frame off a couple of weeks ago to cut the uppers off.

    When we put this back together we are fitting the later design uppers with full kits from Meyle.

    Put Lemforder on mine which had steel Bush collars not ally.

    Should last the rest of the car life now and be adjustable still.

    Yes Lemforder is good but the Meyle ones worked out better value taking into account all the bolts come with them. We coat the bolts and the inside of the sleeves with Würth ally paste.

    Some more pics

    Treated floor



    Treated rust going black



    Ohh Poo! Get the MIG out



    Treated blade mount area



    Rust after descaling
